Habitation (represented by several Heb. and Gr. words). God is metaphorically called the habitation of his people (Ps 71:3), in him they find the most delightful rest, safety, and comfort (Ps 91:9). Justice and judgment are the habitation of God's throne (Ps 89:14), all his acts being founded on justice and judgment (Ps 117:2). The land of Canaan, the city of Jerusalem, the tabernacle and Temple, are spoken of as the habitation of God; there he does or did signally show himself present (Ps 132:5,13; Eph 2:22). Eternity is represented as his habitation (Isa 57:15). He "inhabited the praises of Israel," a told metaphor, implying that Jehovah is the object of, and kindly accepts the praises of his people (Ps 22:3). SEE DWELLING.
